Cozy Chicken

Sometimes you just need some comfort food.  This recipe is like a fuzzy blanket, it gives you the comfort you are searching for.  Although this recipe can be a bit heavy, I have added some modifications to make this a healthier recipe.

Ingredients:

6-8 chicken thighs (you can use chicken breast if you are watching your calories)

Salt & pepper to taste

2 Tablespoons of butter

4 cloves of minced garlic

6 ounces of mushrooms

1 cup of chicken broth

2 teaspoons of Italian seasoning

¼ cup of heavy cream (you can use a light version if you would like to cut additional calories)

Fresh herbs to taste (I used parsley)

Instructions:

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees
  • Salt and pepper both sides of the chicken thighs
  • Melt butter on skillet over medium high heat. Add chicken thighs, skin side down and brown both sides. Takes about 4 minutes each side.
  • Remove chicken thighs and place in a baking dish.
  • Cook garlic and mushrooms in the same pan the chicken was browned in with the excess chicken fat and butter. Cook until the mushrooms are tender, about 6 minutes.
  • Place mushrooms and excess juice into the baking dish with the chicken.
  • Pour chicken broth over mixture.
  • Season with Italian seasoning.
  • Place baking dish in the oven and roast for 30 minutes or until internal temperature is 175 degrees F.
  • Remove from oven and place chicken on a plate. Pour mushroom mixture and excess juices into the skillet. Add heavy cream and bring to a boil.
  • Reduce heat and simmer for 4 minutes.
  • Turn off stove and add the chicken back in the skillet. Pour mushroom sauce over the chicken and garnish with fresh herbs.
  • Enjoy!
